Ember Knights: Patch v0.7 Adds Anville Miniboss Variants and Community-Requested Features

Ember Knights Patch v0.7
November Update Twitter/@TheEmberKnights

Patch v0.7 for the action roguelite Ember Knights is now available on all platforms. This update brought new content, as well as new features requested by the community.

Scrap Chief Mack, a mini-boss found in the Anville Great Forge, now has three new variants. Players who have been beating him a lot prior to this update may have to rethink their strategies because Scrap Chief Mack has new tricks up his sleeves.

The latest update also introduces new relics. One of the most notable is Titan’s Wargear, a new legendary relic that permanently increases weapon damage when defeating an enemy.

Some existing relics in Ember Knights have been tweaked as well. Previously, the Backup Dagger did nothing but add bonus damage to attacks. But now, weapon attacks with this relic equipped trigger an additional dagger attack, allowing players to deal more damage overall.

The developers want players to enjoy the game, which is why they’ve implemented some of the requested features by the community. Players can now reroll regular shops, and doing so will change the items being offered in the stores. 

Additionally, players’ Skill Charges are now completely refilled whenever they enter a new area.
